In today’s French press review, we look at Taliban attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Only on Wednesday, around a hundred people were killed in Peshawar, and several UN members lost their lives in Kabul.
The newspaper focuses on the uncertain future of the region, just a few days away from the presidential election in Afghanistan.
Still in Afghanistan, Le Parisien
talks about the case of nine French soldiers who died last year.
They were ambushed by Taliban insurgents and according to the victims’ families, their deaths could have been avoided.
In Germany, the centre right newspaper Le Figaro
focuses on Angela Merkel’s re-election as the German Chancellor.
And finally we look at the sports newspaper L’Equipe
, paying a tribute to the famous French boxer, Marcel Cerdan.
